Way that she rested her chin

Geena - IG: @geena_serra and I teamed up again to do our fall collection photo shoot. It was rather last minute idea that I suggested, and she was available. She showed up with some outfits that she rather quickly put together, and we started shooting at this park in La Sierra. And this was one of those shots where everything worked perfectly - from her piercing gaze to her puckering grin to her hair hanging loose on one side to the way that she rested her chin on her hand.

Battling at war

I celebrated my Christmas Eve by these sculptures in Borrego Springs. One of them that I had always wanted to photograph was this piece of art. Scorpion. This particular shot that I took provoked an image in my mind that it was battling at war like in Starship Troopers. The airplane trails in the sky certainly looked like missiles flying over. In order to achieve this, I stacked three 20-second exposure shots.

It isn’t about destination but journey

On my way back from Death Valley, I started noticing beautiful light slowly forming far out west across the desert. I was traveling somewhere between Mojave and Rosamond. Then, it started glowing in orange, red and purple like crazy! It was happening so fat! I pulled over and grabbed my camera and tripod. While composing a shot, I kept wondering why wasn’t anyone stopping for this? I was sure everyone had a place to get to. But… Like they say, it isn’t about the destination but the journey… And I happily pressed the shutter button.

Loved how she held her gaze

After the ceremony, I led Karen and Mark to the Beverly Hills Civic Center courtyard, across the street from the Beverly Hills Courthouse. I had called the admin office prior to the ceremony for the last minute approval to shoot there and got approved, so we didn’t have to worry about being stopped by the security. I took full advantage of how well shaded the entire courtyard was with a bit of openings where the sunlight crept in. Loved how she held her gaze with a smile while he was looking at her.

Star trails seen from Mars

Throughout the night, I had been looking at Polaris to do star trails. While strolling around at the foot of the Grandstand, one of the mounds with a dome shape stood out for me. While trying to keep myself warm, I wondered about the star trails seen from Mars. The temperature at the Racetrack was about the average high temperature high (36F) in July in Gale Crater on Mars, where Curiosity, NASA’s Mars rover, roamed around. It was time to pack up my gear and say good night to the monolith.

One of longest 146 seconds I could remember

After spending a good couple of hours in this lake floor with not a single soul around, I decided to try a selfie. If you have done this before, you know holding still for longer than 2 minutes, let alone 30 seconds, isn’t an easy thing to do, especially when it is quite cold. Once I framed the shot with myself clear of the Grandstand and the Milky Way over my head, I stepped onto my mark and pressed the remote shutter. It was one of the longest 146 seconds I could remember.

Perfect backdrop for happiest couple

Karen and Mark were the most adorable couple I saw that day! Newly married, just wonderful couple. A slight hiccup in terms of the location where they wanted to shoot after the ceremony didn’t deter us from getting gorgeous shots! I led them to this family friendly park nearby where we were able to take full advantage of the late afternoon sunlight with a lot of wonderful colors in the background. A perfect backdrop for the happiest couple that day.

Like slowly dying ember

The flames were slowly expiring. But the orange and pink glow in the sky persisted like slowly dying ember. I had been thinking to capture the reflection of the sky in those small puddles and tubs of seawater. Soon, I found one that I liked, planted my tripod firmly at the foot of this tub as deep as my knees and composed the shot. Before the flames went out completely, I started pressing the remote shutter.

Wondered if red glow would last into night

The twilight descended quickly. But, still strewn with the flaming clouds, the brightly lit sky was not going to lose the colors any time soon. The tides were low, but the waves kept crashing violently at the rock bed below me. I wondered if the red glow would last into the night. As if a volcano erupted and the perpetual flow of lava were swirling into the ocean.

And yes, her gaze was just bewitching

One of the spots by the Pirate Tower that Geena - IG: @geena_serra, and I found was this crevice between the huge rocks. The tides were low, but the waves kept coming in and crashing at knee high. She was a trooper! The light was simply gorgeous, gently enveloping her body and accentuated the contour. And yes, her gaze was just bewitching.
